Turkey seasons over and the fishing is great. Got to go to Lake James with my fishing buddy yesterday evening and although we went to do some night crappie fishing,suprisingly the bass were biting really good. Good thing they were I guess since there was over 50 boats in the water at the dock waiting to head out fishing a bass tournament. The water was still high from all the rain and it was.... Read More
My season has been great,but hard. Was blessed with a trophy bird at Dons and tagged out reaching one of my goals,taking a nice one with my bow. Nice accomplishment,but I think I prefer the distance my shotgun allows,lol.
11 inch beard
1 inch spurs
Now its time to do some long overdue fishing with my fishing buddies
My friend Donion don't know this,but when he ask me to come up for a few days and turkey hunt I was smiling from ear to ear,I was so excited. I was able to kill what I feel is the bird of a lifetime. To me this is a trophy bird. 24lbs,1 1/8 inch spurs and he had a 10 1/2 inch double beard. Both beards the same length. I was also able to make a shot on this bird that I would normally question,but.... Read More
I got to watch these beautiful gobblers today put on a heck of a show.Gracie got to see them also and couldn't believe her eyes,lol.Beautiful birds,but they're safe.They are in an area that I can't hunt,lol
I finally got a chance to go fishing yesterday morning on Lake Julian again. I had hopes that the crappie would be biting. Well,they weren't. I did get to see this beautiful loon. You guys may see them a lot where you live,but its rare to see one on a lake here.
I did make the most of a nice day,I left the lake and went scouting on some gameland and heard two turkeys gobble and saw another.... Read More
Can't wait to spend some quality time with my little fishing buddy Gracie fishing the pond again. Hopefully she will get her a big gobbler this season,she has been talking about it since last season. If she don't I know she will still be happy just to get to turkey hunt with me. She soaks in all the quality time we spend outdoors together,and so do I.
Was gonna refresh this video to get you guys all fired up for opening day,lol, but couldn't find it.So I thought I would repost it.Like I have been saying for 6 months now guys, time is winding down.
By the way,this is a great video
What a nice day for turkey scouting in the mountains.I went to a few different places on gameland and found that the places that looked most difficult to set up,looked to be the most promising.Saw many deer tracks and some turkey tracks at on particular spot and some absolutely beautiful scenery. By the way,if anyone wants to invite me for a day of turkey hunting,I'm game,lol.
We had a good rain here yesterday and last night so I planned to go back to the gameland where I saw the turkey tracks with hopes of seeing more.This track of gameland is surely abundant in all types of wildlife.Although I didn't see turkey tracks today,I did see a lot of deer track everywhere,some impressive in size. I also saw possum tracks,many rabbit tracks,a bobcat track,and unfortuately .... Read More
Take a big deer roast from past season out of the freezer,put in crock pot with veges,water,salt and pepper set ur timer,put on your boots and go turkey scouting for 4 or 5 hours. Come back tired and cold,walk in the door and smile when you think of how smart you were for thinking to do this before you left. Kick off your boots make some cornbread and chow down while you watch some turkey.... Read More
I Didn't want to give up the Spursuader that Gobblintom made for my daughters Birthday,but sadly I let it go. It was worth it to see the smile on her face when I handed it to her,and she had to tug hard to get me to turn it loose,lol. She also got a new target to practice her new bow on.She is looking forward to her first turkey hunt this year.I would really love to see her get one.But I would.... Read More
Took my fishing buddie Gracie on her first crappie fishing trip this morning. It was also her first time fishing from a boat. She was up bright and early and made sure she had her fishing clothes,coat and gloves all laid out last night. Gracie was successful in proving she can reel the crappie in just as good as she does the trout,bass and bream.I can count on one hand the people I call my.... Read More
Got the new Spursuader in the mail today.Was supposed to be a Birthday gift for my daughter,but as I was trying it out myself I was trying to justify keeping it for myself and maybe giving my daughter some hunting socks or something instead,lol. I handed it to Gracie and said give it a try, and she also wanted it,even though she already has one. So I guess I will be baking a cake or something.... Read More
